I did forget to "Thank" you also. Thank you for the READ folder I'd made up long ago for posts by Betty I'll get to when I have spare time - got any spare time?
Betty replies, "Not any more! At least not for you - LOL"
And that's why you'll have a special place in my heart (when I find it) - grin.
You got any rellies from Cornwall, England? Mevagissey? Someone on this list does.
As I recall my search here on the Mass list was: WHIPPEY out of Nantucket (I'll have to look at my notes).
Again, thanks for sharing.
